Using PowerShell to manage GPOs
I went back to the Group Policy team to find out more about what I could do to manage machines using GPOs. This time Lilia, with some help from Lindsay, showed off ways you can use PowerShell to both query and make changes to registry settings.
Beyond the registry though, there are some settings you can make with Group Policy that aren't stored in the registry.
Lindsay demos a PowerShell script that she wrote searches for any kind of settings in all of the GPOs in a domain. You can find all the different values of a setting in your environment without opening up a report for each GPO. To get the script and read more about it, go to the Group Policy Blog.
